are first before you can solve it. >> all right thank you sir. mr. yee. >> he is absolutely right. there are different categories of homeless individuals and families. i spent 20 years running an organization which we had programs in the tender loin and we actually served a lot of homeless families and many of the families what do they want? a home for the kids. they want jobs and child care. those are the things we're talking about and justifying the needs. there are many others but not the vast majority. the vast majority of the people that want to get out of the homelessness. there is a small percentage of people that were veterans which is true but what happened we got rid of mental health services and that's what happened. once we started getting rid of mental health services we saw increase of people on the street that seemed to need a lot more help. >> thank you. >> there is a wide range, a wide spectrum of the reasons people end up on the street to schizophrenia individuals to destiewt individuals and peel who are optunistic about it and have hotels or other parts of
for the evening. >> great thank you president yee. ladies and gentlemen and all of our parents listening at home. i wish you a good evening. thank you for being here in the board room. just a few thoughts to share with you. we are coming upon a very special election in the next few weeks and people will have an opportunity to vote and as you're deciding on candidates and ballot measures to vote for i would like to draw your attention to proposition 30 and 38. with the understanding that if these prop propositions pass they have significant impact on funding. if neither one passes financial resources will be greatly diminished for schools in california and specifically here in san francisco. the lodge cuts include that we will be forced to shorten the school year by five days this year and nine days next year in addition to the substantial cuts that will be at school sites and for students. i want to encourage all of you to vote in the election. vote your witness but there's vote. the. >> >> schools of association or wasp as they are known in the district is accreditation process that al
. mr. yee. >> here's the four things i would do to create jobs. number one, help the small businesses with a one stot shop approach. ocean avenue had a fire. nine businesses had a fire and the mayor came and if he could do that one time we could do that all the time and number two give taxing incentives for high-tech and these jobs and kids are graduates and we don't have the jobs and number three i would support the convention bureau in bringing tourism and we know tourism is really a big job producer in san francisco. number four, we also have lots of funding, government funding, that is supporting capital projects, and for instance 2006 we did not have local hiring for our bond measure. 2011 half a billion dollars worth of work. i want local hiring so that we pay for it. our people that live here should benefit from it. >> all right. thank you. all right. now we're going to come to the candidate's closing statements but i want to remind you if you haven't registered to vote you still have time. please urge everyone to register the deadline is october 22nd and if you moved you
actually enforce that and collect the taxes on it. >> thank you sir. mr. yee. >> cheryl i just want to make sure -- >> i can repeat it. there is internet base market for short base rentals and they sublease units to visitors and tourists and many are illegal and the city's hotel tax is not collected. should the city legalize these arrangements and collect the hotel tax? >> i traveled to different countries and i go to the internet and they have hotels and these rentals advertise and i have used these apartments as rentals for either a few days or one week and it's kind of nice to be there so i would support it and once you have it legalized you have again another base of revenues to tax and if they do advertisement and most will or go through an agency people would know about it, so it's not like -- right now we're gaining nothing and people are doing it anyways so why don't we take advantage of the fact we legalize it and actually increase our tax revenue. >> thank you sir. >> well, i know this issue got some press earlier this year but i don't know how widespread it is. i mean
project and i support it. >> thank you sir. mr. yee. >> here are my two criterias when it comes to housing. i believe in reasonable growth and i believe in healthy robust community process, so here we are. we just developed something in our district on ocean avenue and we had a healthy discussion around the avalon development. broke ground. no protests. people agreed on it. felix circle we had a healthy discussion and we will have additional housing there too. i was just up on crest mount drive. there is controversy over there whether this is reasonable or not and i don't think the developer who is have presented the project is reasonable, but the neighbors in seem to be reasonable because they weren't saying "don't build anything". they said "let's scale down the development somewhat" so i support those notions of reasonable growth, community process and i do support proposition c for affordable housing funds. >> thank you sir. >> well, there is some room for increased density but let's face it. this is a finite 49 square miles and that defines san francisco. i am n
right. thank you sir: mr. yee. >> thank you cheryl. the most important thing -- the most important immediate policy that we can address and adl of us can address is proposition e. that is to move our payroll tax to gross receipt tax and why? because by doing that we can create jobs in san francisco and keep people in san francisco . the kids are growing up and we want them to stay but we need jobs. i agree with mr. crowley with the police force and make sure that is fully staffed and i have been speaking to the police athletic league and they have a program to breen the teenagers to be interns in the police force and they would feed into the police cadet program. thank you. >> thank you sir. the next question the city's liabilities are projected to increase in the next coming year. s what new or increased fees should it institute and i will repeat the question and we will begin with mr. crowley. >> i would say that one of the bigger things that we will have before us is the gross receipts tax check that norman talked about trading from the payroll tax which is punitive. the nex
. yee. >> so let's face it. let's not make our parking meters the atm for the city. i mean we really need to support the notion that we don't want meters to operate on sunday, especially in our district, district seven. the business corridors need access to customers and when you charge on sundays and parking meters the same people shopping and at restaurants they're going to go somewhere else. they're going to go to stonestown and the malls and if you believe in the small businesses in the community then we need to support the notion that we're not going to allow for parking meters to operate on sunday. >> okay. thank you mr. yee. mr. bye. >> i completely oppose sunday and late night meters and our district. i agree with norman that it really will literally drive people out of the area and down to south city or some other area in which people want to come to this part of town for the small town experience that we have and shopping in westportal or walking around getting lunch at ocean or some place like that, but it's also speaks to something i mentioned earlier. it's another
that that process hasn't really stopped and deputy superintendent yee and his group of smart team members have already met around that question. what is effective? what do we continue to fund? and what do we propose to the board that we discontinue funding in terms of really using our ponies wisely to fund what we know is effective. >> commissioner wynns. >> i'm sorry. i have one more question. >> okay. go ahead. >> oh i know what i wanted to sc. just as a corollary. katie francis gave me some data and there's some issues on kids taking the cma, how many kids are taking it? you touched on some of this. i would like to see an analysis what is the use of the cma, particularly in the superintendent zone and does -- i mean the ideas -- has the bottom been sort of cut off in the superintendent zone as well as as she demonstrated in some of the district wide figures by putting kids into cma and is our use greater in the superintendent zones than the district as a whole? i know you don't have that at your fingertips but if i could get that i would be interested. >> thank you. >> i actually wan
comments from the board? commissioner maufas. >> thank you president yee and thank you all for the pretty jam packed full of information presentation. what i would like to ask is knowing that we have come this far and we have been working quite intensely over the last few years -- particularly since i have been on the board and really knowing the work that i of focused on, i would like to know how are we -- you know, how are teachers bringing this work about? and administrators in school sites? and this is a really ongoing question because this is an ongoing presentation where you update us. i would like not only to hear from you now but in the future this sort of discussion point incorporated into the presentation because they're integral to the process, and what are the changes that they of able to implement? because a lot of this -- a lot of our issues from my perspective comes from an institutionalized way of delivering education and it's so long engrinned in ssz that the achievement gap is from way back before my time in school, so how are we able to sort of attack that, that min
. the bill written by leland yee will look at inmates that were arrested as a teenager. more than 300 inmates are currently eligible for that reduction. >>> another first for california with the state set to become the first to ban therapy that tries to turn gay or lesbian teens straight. the governor announced today it has signed senate bill 1172. it is slated to go into effect january 1st. those who opposed the bill said they intend to seek a temporary injunction against the law. >>> starting tomorrow in san francisco, you will need to bring your own bag or an extra dime or two to the store. the city's check out bag ordnance goes into effect monday. stores must give up plastic and offer paper or compostable bags instead. customers will have to pay 10- cents per bag and if they forget to bring their own. restaurants and bakeries are exempt from the law until next year. >>> san francisco blue's fans got a treat today. you have to keep working on. the two day festival filled two blocks with music, food and a lot of fun. >> one happy festival going explains that listening to the blues is a dif
